Growing up, a lot of people have wild, extravagant and unrealistic ideas about what their jobs as adults will be. I wanted to be a Pokémon trainer, and after asking Santa on numerous occasions to make them real, I eventually accepted it wasn’t going to happen.

But if your dream job as a child was being a chicken nugget connoisseur, you’re in luck!

A little-known fact about this fast food stable was that it was invented in the 1950s. Surprisingly, it wasn’t by McDonald’s, but by science professor Robert C. Baker. The food might be synonymous with McDonald’s now, but the restaurant didn’t sell them until 1980.

Now there are four recognized shapes of chicken nuggets at McDonald’s – the bell, bone (now bow), ball, and boot.

Sadly, however, it is not McDonald’s who are on the hunt for a “Chicken Nugget Connoisseur” – yes, that’s the job’s listed title – but the British bargain supermarket chain B&M who are famed for their economically priced tinned goods.

They’re now branching out into fresh and frozen foods and that’s where you could potentially come in.

The supermarket chain needs a poultry expert to help them get their nuggets just right. But that’s not all you’ll be sampling…
